Phones in rooms

Do guest rooms require landline phones in the State of Florida?

Before the proliferation of wireless, telephones were placed in guestrooms because they generated income for the hotel. A fee was applied to the guest’s bill for each call made.
Today in the U. S., guestroom telephones are more of an amenity…like blow dryers or coffeemakers. But, I don’t believe phones are required.

Does is really matter to have a phone in the room anymore? Hotels are providing their apps or in room TV features to contact for any services etc.

Unless its a statutory requirement for classification or certification then in room phones are like outdated. :slight_smile:
